Senior Jeff Adams signed a free agent contract with the Dallas Cowboys on Monday and will head to Texas this week to start the Cowboys’ rookie mini-camp. Adams, a sociology major from Western Springs, Illinois, is a three-time All-Ivy League left tackle for Columbia, making him the first Lion since 1996 to earn three consecutive All-Ivy honors. After his final season in 2011, Adams was named a third-team Associated Press All-American. Seven other Lions have signed with NFL teams in the last twenty years, including Craig Hormann from last year’s graduating class and three players in 2005. Congratulations to Jeff and the Columbia football team!
